How can I get rid of hyperpigmentation?
Q: I am 36 years old. I have hyperpigmentation under my eyes and the area above my mouth. I want this to be removed/lightened. I have tried microdermabrasion as well glyco-peels, but to no avail. What should I do to get rid of the hyperpigmentation?
A:This is called periorbital and perioral pigmentation. The cause for this is mostly unknown, although factors like sunlight, drugs, fatigue and cosmetics are incriminated. Please make a note of these and avoid them. A cream containing 2-4% hydroquinone applied at nights daily for around six months is sure to help you.
